A total of 96,000 people without a corona passport entered Norway the first week after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs changed its travel advice. 

Everyone who is not fully vaccinated must register on arrival. On average, 13,813 travelers registered themselves every day, according to figures P4 has obtained from the Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB) entry register.

“It has been a reasonably busy week. It started with a bang last Monday, and it has proceeded at full speed since then. 

“We had tested four times as many people as we had done in the weeks before,” the head of the test station at Svinesund, Jostein Stø, told the channel.

Due to the testing process, large queues appeared, so the station chose to let through some Norwegian citizens that were vaccinated with one dose of the corona vaccine, asking them to test themselves locally.
